Second Sunday Snowshoe!

We know that some of you wait anx­ious­ly all year for our Sec­ond Sun­day Snow­shoe events. This year, we will be snow­shoe­ing on Jan­u­ary 11 and Feb­ru­ary 8, from 1 to 3 pm. 

Snow­shoe events will be themed this year:

  • On Jan­u­ary 11, Fred Breglia will lead the snow­shoe pack; the theme of this hike will be Win­ter Trees. Fred will teach par­tic­i­pants how to iden­ti­fy trees with­out their leaves.
  • On Feb­ru­ary 8, George Steele will lead the snow­shoe pack; the theme of this hike is Ani­mal Tracks and Traces. George will teach par­tic­i­pants how to fig­ure out who has been vis­it­ing by read­ing the tracks and oth­er traces they leave behind. 

Join us for an invig­o­rat­ing day of win­ter fun. Adults and fam­i­lies are all invit­ed to learn about the dif­fer­ent types of snow­shoes and prac­tice the basic skills you need to enjoy the seren­i­ty and unique beau­ty of win­ter on snow­shoes on the Arbore­tum trails. There are a lim­it­ed num­ber of snow­shoes avail­able for sizes from tod­dler to teens and adults. Every­one will get a chance to try out the snow­shoes, but arrive ear­ly if you need them, or bring your own. We will all meet back at the Farm House for hot cocoa and cof­fee. Dress appro­pri­ate­ly for the weath­er and wear a stur­dy pair of boots. No snow? No prob­lem! We’ll take a win­ter hike instead. — but do check our Face­book page if the weath­er is real­ly bad! 

Reg­is­tra­tion is $5 per per­son or $15 for fam­i­lies for mem­bers of the Arbore­tum, and $10 per per­son or $25 for fam­i­lies who are not mem­bers of the Arboretum. 

For more infor­ma­tion or to reg­is­ter, call the Arbore­tum at (518) 8756935 or email us at info@​landisarboretum.​org.
